State of Play

I was just struggling to remember where I was when I saw this movie when I remembered Shiloh saying at the end of it: "That's right--the liberal press saves the day from the totally corrupt government." hahaha I laughed outloud! It's just a movie, Shiloh! :) A movie that I liked pretty much everything about. I liked Russel Crowe and his relationship w/Rachel McAdams--just truly coworker stuff. In fact, I loved all the ladies....
Even the Princess Bride was great. Loved all the actors now that I think of it. It was a great story. In fact, the only thing I didn't like was how they tried to make Ben & Russell and the Princess Bride the same age.
Seriously????? College roommates? And then I have to remind myself what I said to Shiloh--it's just a movie. It was good anyway. I would say this movie was a solid 8.

My Life in Ruins

I had pretty low expectations for this movie and I ended up totally liking it! Nia Vardalos was totally buggin' in the beginning but I thought her metamorphosis was really fun and believable. Plus there were lots of awesome scenery like this.....
Richard Dreyfus was awesome and so were lots of the funny people on the tour. I thought it was entertaining and fun....and a really different romance!
It wasn't too obvious or cheesy--and these two seemed to be very well matched. I would probably rate this movie a 7 or 8--it was really enjoyable and I would recommend seeing it--it was a nice surprise.

The Proposal

I loved soooooo many things about this movie! Probably in this order:
1) Alaska
2) Ryan Reynolds
3) Sandra Bullock
4) Betty White!
5) and lots lots more.....
I loved it when the tables turned and Andrew took charge--so unexpectedly funny.
And I loved every scene in Alaska--Alaskan Kennedys--that was hilarious!!! Plus I love Sandy's outfit in this scene...
The ending totally surprised me--twice! Oh and I loved Andrews family too--from the previews I thought they were going to bug but they were very endearing and funny.
This is one of the better romantic comedies I've seen in awhile--I totally want to see it again so I would give it an 8, maybe an 8.5. If nothing else, Ryan is HOT (waaaaaay too hot for ScarHo).

Plus look at that necklace!

I don't really know a lot of people that wanted to see this movie--so when Amanda agreed---I was so excited! And it definitely had it's sort of cheesy/bad acting moments....but overall I thought it was interesting and entertaining .
The main thing I left the movie thinking was---just how long did he have to work out to get a body like that? Seriously!!!
In the end, Beyonce kicks some serious ass! She was awesome and I like her more and more all the time. Overall, I'd probably rank this movie a 7.

The Ghost of Girlfriends Past

Two weeks ago, my gorgeous companion Heather and I had our annual B-day celebration and this year we went to see Ghost of Girlfriends Past. Overall I liked it--even though I know hardly any of you will agree with me. Here's why:
  1. Jen Garner will always really be Sydney Bristow to me so I love her.
  2. Even though Matthew Mc was a pig, he was never bad to Jenni so it didn't bug me that they got together. She ruined him in the beginning--it just took him forever to realize that.
  3. Loved the Newport mansion.
  4. This was another thing I liked about the movie....
If you ask me, Jack T. Colton's still got it!

Would I recommend it? Hmmmm.....I'm not sure. It's probably almost out of theaters by now anyway--so maybe you could wait til its in the Red Box. Otherwise give it a try but set your expectations low! :)
